Manchester United fans were delighted with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s performance against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday evening.
The Swede scored a spectacular goal in the first-half as he lobbed Everton goalkeeper Stekelenberg from distance to open the scoring.
After failing to score in six league games in a row, Ibrahimovic has now scored four in three games.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.

Ibrahimovic has been heavily criticised by fans, but the numbers don’t lie and they do prove that he has played a vital role at Old Trafford.
While he has missed some chances and did endure a goal-scoring drought, the Swede has showcased his ability once again.
Following draws against Stoke City, Burnley, Arsenal and West Ham, United needed a victory to keep in touching distance of the top four.
There is plenty of ground left for Mourinho’s men to cover and with a 1-1 draw over Everton, United will need to go on a run and perform when Tottenham Hotspur come knocking at Old Trafford next weekend.
